Learning English Grammar : Forming Verbs

Assalamualaikum WBT,

How do you do my darling readers and followers? Lovely right?

Well, how was the last entry? This : Learning English Grammar : Forms of Verb

Hope you got the brief meaning on forms of verb and now we are going to see on the forming verbs.

Actually forming verb is not that difficult, we just need to know how to form the verb.

Now, let just give you some examples, see these sentences,

'joy', 'friend' and also 'food'. There are all noun right? 

So, how are we going to form verbs from these words?

Now, this is the answer,
'en+joy= enjoy'
'be+friend= befriend'
'food+ change vowels=feed"

and nowadays, there is something happened to the word 'friend', because of the social media effect, especially Facebook, the word 'friend' created another word, which is "un+friend= unfriend" and it immediately socially accepted but not really on the linguists' point of views, because most of them think that it would easily affect the word. Well, on what term? I do not know really but as long as we understood the word, than to me its okay, and the meaning of the word has expanded right? At least, we use the word more than before. 

Now, verbs can also be formed from adjectives such as 'black', 'large' and also 'fertile'. Well, you know it right?

Same as nouns, verbs are also formed by adding certain letters, e.g. en-, -en, be-, -ize.

Here is a list on the formation of verbs. You may study the words given carefully.
so, that is all!


Assalamualaikum WBT

p/s: study carefully, my darlings.
